Steps Youth Programs Community Update,

We are still accepting students in all of our Academic Year Programs We invite you to explore all of the options available for your child this year at Steps. We will continue with our First Steps, Kids and Teens, and Pre-Professional, and are happy to introduce our new Academy Program, which will enable dancers ages 13 and older from performing arts high schools and middle schools to access high-level classes within Steps Youth Programs, in conjunction with their academic school schedules.

  • Steps Youth Programs will remain completely virtual through the month of December as we continue to wait for New York City’s approval to reopen. Our Active Safety Plan will be included in your registration materials and includes many new protocols to keep you dancer safe and healthy, as well as our teachers, accompanists, and staff members. In-person classes will be offered as a hybrid so that you will have the option of continuing to take classes virtually.
  • All First Steps classes will remain virtual for the entire Second Semester.
  • The schedule for Kids and Teens, Academy, and Pre-Professional Programs will remain consistent throughout the year, whether online or in person.
  • Tuition will be the same, whether online or in person.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you would like to speak on the phone or via zoom, please click here to set up a time that is convenient for you.

What our families are saying:

Thanks also for looking out for the best interests of my son. I’m very happy to be part of the STEPS family because I honestly feel that you guys always put the health, safety and development of the dancers first.

Over the past few weeks I have felt really challenged and pushed into trying new styles that have expanded me as a dancer and it has only further excited me to see what the rest of the year offers. So thank you for this opportunity!

Just to note to say we are all so impressed. My office is right next to my daughter’s studio so I can hear Ms. Gunther – she gives them so much individual attention and so encouraging at the same time. And manages to do all via zoom. My daughter feels like she is learning so much and getting better everyday. We are very lucky to have her!
– Parent

What Steps on Broadway and Steps Youth Programs has done for my son is priceless. Thanks to his dance training and the wonderful directors, staff, faculty, and friends at STEPS, my son is a fit, agile, flexible, disciplined, healthy, strong and happy young man. I will never be able to thank you enough.

We are so grateful for the Steps dance family!! Thank you for creating a supportive and loving home for young dancers!
